Video—American Rifleman TV: Testing the Hornady ELD-X Ammunition

In 2012, after seeing an increasing interest in long-range shooting, Hornady decided to develop a match-accurate, reliably expanding hunting bullet for use at extended ranges. But the challenge set before Hornady’s engineers was to develop a projectile that would embody the company’s keystones—”Accurate, Deadly, Dependable”—at any distance. After overcoming obstacles with the tip of the bullet expanding due to aerodynamic heating, Hornady was able to create a bullet with match-grade accuracy, high retained velocity and energy, and impressive terminal ballistics from less than 100 yards to beyond 800 yards. Thus the ELD-X bullet, standing for Extreme Low Drag-eXpanding, was formed. Check out this video from a recent episode of American Rifleman TV where Joe Kurtenbach visits Hornady's headquarters in Grand Island, Neb., to test the ELD-X Ammunition.
